Welcome to my press conference with absolutely zero press. I’m here to announce a few things, and don’t worry, none are printed on the back of my t-shirt. First of all, after a Coronavirus delay, our Real Housewives of Potomac ladies are set to come back for Season 5 the first week of August. Taglines are here people! I’m about to build an entire champagne room to celebrate. This franchise is an absolute gift. If you’ve been sleeping on this one, it’s time for a binge. Trust me.
This season viewers will be welcoming Dr. Wendy Osefo to the cast. Apparently Bravo thought she would bring a nice work ethic due to the fact that she’s a political commentator and professor. I’m looking forward to watching her mix it up with either Candiace Dillard or Monique Samuels. You can’t stay neutral on these two! Both women have filed second degree assault charges on the other. These claims were made after a dinner party during the filming. All for this new season! Apparently, the charges were dropped. And what’s the next thing you do after being dismissed from a crime? Drop a rap song! Of course!
Yes. You read that headline correctly. Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules is tired of being called a “mean girl.” Newsflash, lady! We are tired of you BEING a mean girl. I love petty drama but ugh. It’s honestly hard to even know where to begin with her. On ean episode this season, Stassi whines (over wine, HA!) to Beau Clark about how she isn’t allowed to “outgrow” her friendship with Kristen Doute. Like who said that?
Stassi is over her former co-witch Kristen. Shocking considering she is still conveniently friends with her ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor who cheated on her, lied to her face, and has generally been a terrible person forever. Stassi was also quick to make up with Katie Maloney when she was returning to the show after leaving post-Season 3. I mean, she can forgive, when it suits her. And rather than keep the peace with her longtime TV bestie, Stassi has taken to her podcast to continue her complaints.
In a new interview, the reigning queen bee of RHOC (sorry, Vicki Gunvalson) looked back on how the show has changed over the last 12 years, and opened up about her impact on the direction of the franchise in its earliest days.
It’s here! BravoCon is underway and it all got started with the OG Real Housewives, which was only fitting. Andy Cohen hosted a panel called Bravo All Stars: OG Housewives Edition. Real Housewives of Orange County OG Jeana Keough was there. Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof represented Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. No one had any doubt that Jill Zarin would be there. She has been trying to return to Real Housewives of New York for years.
Kim Zolciak was there to dish on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Caroline Manzo weighed in on the Teresa Giudice’s recent interview with Andy. They all talked about the women they’re in touch with. Spoiler alert: Kim Z’s answer is actually very shocking. Adrienne reflects on her divorce from Paul Nassif. And Kim Richards talked about that infamous bunny moment with Lisa Rinna.
I wonder what was most shocking to Vicki Gunvalson: finding out Brooks Ayers didn’t have cancer or getting the news that she got demoted to a part-time Housewife. Sadly, my instincts tell me that it was probably the latter. Vicki still isn’t over the humiliation of her demotion. And she’s talking about it with anyone who will listen.
During a recent Watch What Happens Live episode, a fan called in to ask, “If you could bring back any other OG Housewife, besides yourself, who would you choose and why?” I love how he had to emphasize “besides yourself” when he asked that question. We all know Vicki’s genuine answer to that question.
Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.
What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?
